We Were Featured On Houzz!

Big news!  Our design for Brick Duplex (Side #1) was featured on Houzz!  It was such an honor to be noticed by a design site that we refer to almost daily for inspiration.  Adrienne DeRosa did such a wonderful job capturing the character of the home and our design style.

Rustic, Chic Bathroom Transformation

It’s time for another room reveal in side #2 of our Franklinton duplex.  If you missed our kitchen reveal, check it out here.  And if you missed our progress tour with before photos of the whole house, check it out here.

This is what our dining room fireplace...

$13 DIY Boxwood Christmas Wreath

I’ve been thinking about what kind of wreath would look best against our navy front door.   At first I planned on doing an ornament wreath like this one from Two Purple Couches, and even bought a Styrofoam wreath to get it started.  But then it broke, and I realized I didn’t have a hot glue gun (and didn’t really want to buy one), so I moved onto plan B. We were shopping for a Christmas tree at our local nursery...
